    I have 2 California Whites, 6 Barred Rocks, 2 Buff Orphingtons, and 2 Welsummers. Total of 12 to start. They are all doing very well. The Buff that had pasty bottom last night seems to be doing better. I figure I would just keep an eye on her. Six of them are a week and half old the other six are a week today! [​IMG]

    Sounds like you have a nice flock! All the breeds you chose should be very good egg layers.[​IMG]
